Open Water Has Returned!

April 16, 2017 ·

It’s that time of year again, when ice fishing is over.  So get your flashers charged up and put away, ice augers filled with fresh fuel with some stabilizer added for the summer. Strip any old fishing line off your reels and back your drags off so they don’t get stuck over the off season for them.  Also, check all your rod guides for nicks to be replaced and give them all a good washing with soap and water.  With all that done, get your open water rods and reels ready for the next round of fishing.  Get your Perch and Crappie rods done first.  A couple of things here, you can line them with 6# mono or some super braid for slip bobber fishing early season fish; I don’t use fluorocarbon on slip bobber rods, because it sinks and doesn’t keep your bobber where it needs to be for some of those lite biters. 

Perch and Crappies: Set up slip bobber rigs either with split shots and Aberdeen hooks or small jigs tipped with small minnows or your favorite plastic fished in the shallows around any structure in the water around sand bottoms.

Happy fishing!  Selective harvest is the way to go.  Colin Crawford's Guide Service, crawfordfishing@gmail.com (715)891-2715.  Website is www.crawfordfishing.com or you can also find Phelps Outdoors on Facebook.
